This Bug Spreads A Disease That Might Not Show Symptoms For Years | Texas Standard

I got in contact with all three women that were included in the piece, wrote the lead and questions for the interviews, conducted all three interviews, edited the interview audio, wrote the final script, recorded/edited my narration, and put the whole story together.

This was, by far, my favorite piece I’ve worked on throughout my internship.
